Pope Francis consulted a psychoanalyst

Pope Francis has revealed, for the first time, that he sought help from a psychoanalyst when he was younger.

“At a certain point, I felt the need to consult an analyst. For six months, I went to her house once a week to clarify a few things,” he revealed in the book, Pope Francis: Politics and Society.

He did not specify exactly what “things” he wanted to clarify or why he felt the need to seek psychiatric help but he did say the treatment was successful.

“In those six months, she really helped me,” he said. “She was a wonderful person,” the 81-year-old pontiff said. ...

"The biblical truth of sola Scriptura exposed Rome’s teaching. Rome smuggled in the Apocrypha, as if it were part of the Word of God. Rome made its tradition of equal authority with the Bible. This went hand-in-hand with its unbiblical and anti-biblical doctrines: Mariolatry (the idolatrous veneration of the Virgin Mary), purgatory (an alleged place of fire where believers bear the temporal punishment of their sins), transubstantiation (the change of the bread and wine into the literal body, blood and divinity of Christ), the mass (an unbloody sacrifice offered by a priest for the sins of the living and the dead), the papacy and its hierarchy (in contrast to the New Testament’s permanent church offices: pastors, elders and deacons), five additional sacraments (confirmation, marriage, ordination, penance, last rites).

Sola Scriptura is needed today against Rome just as much as in the sixteenth century. Rome still holds the same heresies as it did at the Reformation, for it has not given up one of them and has reaffirmed all of them (e.g., at Vatican II and in the Catechism of the Catholic Church). In fact, since the Reformation, Rome has added more heresies, such as, papal infallibility in 1870"

Francis needs help alright, but not from some insane psychoanalyst or any other psycho whatever but needs help from the Lord Jesus Christ.

...and I would look at your comment but I can't, laptop's down and I'm on my Kindle Fire HD, but the topic had to do with medication, chemicals messing up people's health (which it does, my medication can affect my liver, never has happened tho) and the living naturally part.

No I think you and I would agree living naturally would probably be the best way to go, don't live off of Cheetos and Mountain Dew, eat healthy, take your vitamins, your multivitamin, herbs, etc. don't do a 5 hour energy, do vitamin b 12 instead and use peppermint essential oil, that's a healthier option to wake you up. And do melatonin (do 5mg) and lavender essential oil to help you go to bed.

But as I'm sure you know, it can be complicated when living naturally isn't the cheapest thing, nor is it an option at times, drug therapy (instead of Nutrition therapy) is in most cases the way to go, because it can be easier on the finances, the condition, ect.

I took over 30 minutes to reply, if you have any other questions I'd be happy to respond, I don't want to cause disunity, again, I acknowledge that the one post was out of anger, not the right attitude, so please forgive me.

God bless.

Penny, first off, I just saw your post now, I would've responded right off if I'd seen it earlier (6 hours ago) second, I'm not angry with you, I hope that there wasn't a misunderstanding, the comment wasn't in anger towards you, if you thought I was angry at you, please forgive me.

I know I used the phrase "Penny's position" (or something like that) and that was used to clarify who I was talking about, what I would be addressing, I admit probably could've phrased it better, I was in a rush.

However I do think you're putting all Christian counselors in one pot, and you're putting all patients (can't think of a better term) in the same pot, now if you're just using it as a general example, I can see that, but I think that might fall into the same example of Ign's statistics,

because some Christian counselors might be using some (not all) worldly practices in order to help their brother/sister in Christ, not even knowing that the practices are not biblical...

Conner7, can I ask you why you are angry with me? It is these Christian counselors that deny the physical realities that cause mental disturbance (they are not trained in testing for heavy metal poisoning, parasites, hormone disfunction etc that are common now among the population, nor the neurological system!).... they want everyone to sit around and talk about their feelings. a year later, everyone's still stressed about debt, despondent and unfaithful.

I've been to quite a number of funerals and spent my days taking care of the sick. not a novice, my friend.

nor am I against you or anyone in their physical struggles.

As Ken Ham notes below- ( about 35 min into his State of the Nation)
The #1 reason people leave the " church" is hypocrisy
" you told me to trust the Bible & now you tell me that 6 days of creation doesn't matter"

Same thing with false brethren and false bible-
Pr6:"16These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: 17A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, 19A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. 20My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: 21Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck. 22When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee."

Would not be so many already gone were this adhered to with diligence.

Howdy IE, interesting that you should quote Proverbs of my favorite, most referenced verses because it's perfect for the hypocrite, the know-it-alls, the over-talking interruptors who only value what they, themselves have to say, and the ignorant who fight for their cause or spew their hate without any concern for getting the full story/facts.
Also perfect for those who believe they are spiritual gurus; having anything and everything figured out just perfectly and a mind closed off to any reasonable arguments/facts which refute their own particular views or agendas. Love the verse.
A quick comment on minds gone wrong. I've seen and known people who suffered head trauma who became disturbed in an insane sort of way following the injury. However, I've also had my fill of some very disturbed homeless from Chicago, to New York, to Vegas, and beyond, and all I could ever think about their behavior was that it went beyond simple mental disturbances. Especially many with their breadboards screaming Christ from street corners, but doing so in ways that made Christians look looney-tunes, and just their expressions alone seemed to go well beyond mere emotional issues. I've seen some scary people out there.

one of the books I'm reading is, "Already compromised" if you want some good quotes, get that book if you don't have it already, although I have a feeling you own the book.
Yup- I have read it - liked it- watching it happen.
For example Baptist$ $elling Chi$tian $tandard Bible-CSB( should be C$B
translates anthropos, Greek word for “man,” in a gender-neutral form 151 times, rendering it “human,” “people,”&“ones.” previous edition had done this on occasion; new revision adds almost 100 more. “Men of Israel” becomes “fellow Israelites;” when discussing Jesus’s incarnation the “likeness of men” becomes “likeness of humanity.” CSB translates adelphoi, a Greek word for “brother” in gender-neutral form 106 times, often adding “sister.” “Brotherly love” is translated “love as brothers and sisters.”
gender-neutralizing pattern in CSB Old Testament. -where NIV “gender-neutral” revision uses “human” or “humanly” for masculine term,C$B concurs with “human” “humanly” or “human being(s)” 67 times
Gen 1:27 already compromised by $outhern Baptist$

Woops, let's try that again, the majority of people in the asylums could be demon possessed, I've heard quotes from agnostics, basically saying, "There is no other way to explain this except that they are possessed."
But I stand by my argument concerning the studies, I think that is not a valid argument, in my humble, humble, honest, unbiased and correct opinion.
I just talked to a "pro" in this area who said "Exactly That"
He is a born again Master's degree in the counseling, mental health area- his opinion is most of the "problem nuts" are devil possessed & or oppressed. He dealt with a large number of kids in India care home, hospitals! In his older years he moved to the states and sees the same problem

As for your opinion- get back to me after you read the authors I referenced.

I always think I'm right. But I don't think I'm always right.
That couplet bugs a lot of people until I point out that it is hardly worth thinking something if u think u are thinking wrong.

Pr18:13 "He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him."

1- ebooks point of Bobgans- Christian experts trained in this area-who give you their entire books free to evaluate their position
- please read two or three or 12 of them&feel free to critique
I think their case biblical/reasonable

2 - book I noted by secular experts

Torrey, E. Fuller. Witchdoctors and Psychiatrists: The Common Roots of Psychotherapy and Its Future. Northvale, New Jersey: Jason Aronson, 1986. (Originally, The Mind Game: Witchdoctors and Psychiatrists. Emerson Hall, 1972)

E. Fuller Torrey is a practicing psychiatrist presently associated with St. Elizabeth's hospital inWashington, D.C. He was once close to Tom Szasz, but has modified his position somewhat.Rather than believing that there is no such thing as mental illness, he suggests that there are some forms of real schizophrenia&real depression and that these are diseases best treated by somatically oriented physicians, not by psychiatrists

3 lastly - I agree with your use of meds & have a number of family members who need chemicals to balance out problems.
-the news item in view had
no relation to "Psychiatrist" type meds for problems
"psychoanalyst "=Witch doctor
NOT a "Psychiatrist" or somatic doc

Doctor stops premature delivery with Ventolin.
The baby is born healthy a couple of months later lived happily ever after, was that doctor wrong in doing what's medically possible to save that baby? When the other doctors said it was hopeless, and started throwing around the termination (murder) option.
Remember Dave, everything that happens, does so because of God's sovereignty. Nothing happens outside of that. If the baby's premature delivery was adverted, then so be it. The baby lives and that's what matters.

Connor, I should add that I understand the serious nature of your illness, and didn't mean to seem like I was making light of it with the raging Connor comment.

Dave, the day you told me that you began wearing the new rompers for "men", well, after I got past the nausea, I realized that instead of getting angry at your insults, I should try to be more understanding of your missing chromosome.
